Rockhampton may be better known for being the agricultural center of Northern Queensland but there’s one thing you wouldn’t expect to come blasting out of the small town and that is one belter of a release from the local metalcore crew Affintity Minus Perfection. Formed in 2015, the five piece have been steadily growing a fan base across the East coast with their tight sound and energetic stage shows and this November sees the release of their sophomore EP Passion Through Unity.

From the atmo...

Brisbane’s rapidly expanding music scene is currently birthing some absolute giants across many differing genres. One in particular that has been bubbling away for some time now is the hardcore scene and this slow burn has paved the way for a number of bands to perfect their craft and send themselves hurtling forward toward grandeur.

Enter, Lifeblood. Taking cues from some of the chaotic hardcore heavyweights such as The Chariot and Every Time I Die, Lifeblood successfully blend and create the...

Full disclosure; this genre of music is kind of new to me and the thing that led me (and probably a legion of others) to The Black Queen is the involvement of former Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato. But this is far from the chaotic brand of hardcore that the aforementioned band helped to pioneer and is instead more in line with 80’s synth pop than anything else. And you know what? I like it. Now forgive me for not knowing too much about this specific type of music. As diverse as my...

With the release of their tenth studio album Palms just weeks away, Californian rock titans Thrice have announced their long awaited return to Australian shores for a slew of live shows in February next year.

These guys play with surgical precision and a fiery passion that exudes an infectious energy making for one hell of a show.

With dates announced for not only the Eastern major cities but Perth and Adelaide also, this will mark the first time in 10 years that the band have graced stages a...

In the last 5 years, the Australian progressive music scene has been making more and more of a mark internationally than ever before thanks to the likes of bands such as Sleepmakeswaves, Dead Letter Circus, and on the heavier side of things, Northlane and Ne Obliviscaris. Following closely behind these rock and metal powerhouses is Melbournian crew, Circles, who have spent the better part of the last 10 years crafting their own style of prog for our utter enjoyment. This year sees the release...

Since their inception in 2011, alt-rock outfit Mass Sky Raid have gone from strength to strength. From securing an EP distribution deal with MGM to receiving radio play across the pond in the US and UK, the Gold Coast boys have been enjoying well-deserved success. This year sees the release of their debut album Science Of Fiction, the follow up to 2013’s Courage Under Fire EP.

Having slowly dropped singles from the album since 2014, I think it’s fair to say this release has been highly antici...

It hasn’t been the easiest of roads, what with various lineup changes and a whole lot of fan backlash over stylistic changes, but Welsh metal titans Bullet For My Valentine continue to go from strength to strength and their latest album Gravity is a true testament to their staying-power.

Taking a new approach to the songwriting process, Gravity shines through and stands above the bands back catalogue as a much less heavy album than its predecessors. It is also the first to feature drummer Jas...

It’s a Monday night in The Valley so needless to say things are pretty quiet. That is except for The Zoo, where the amassed crowd are about to witness an emotional outpouring from one of alternative rocks most enduring bands, Circa Survive.

Local boys He Danced Ivy are given the task of kicking off proceedings, playing their prog rock hits to a sparse but appreciative crowd. Sounding like the bastard child of Coheed & Cambria and Antemasque, the quartet smash out their eclectic riffs one by o...

Since their inception in the mid-90’s, Atlanta's very own Sevendust have been steadily releasing album after album of their own brand of heavy metal to the masses. Never ones to keep fans waiting and wanting, this year sees the release of new album All I See Is War, the follow up to 2015’s Kill The Flaw.

Opening in true Sevendust fashion with big riffing guitars, tight as hell drum work and vocalist Lajon Witherspoon’s signature croon, All I See Is War hits hard from the get-go and delivers tr...

Amidst numerous lineup changes and on the back of excessive touring, Phoenix, Arizona's The Word Alive have been brandishing the world with their own breed of metal core for the better part of the last 10 years. Now they are poised to set the world on fire with their fifth album Violent Noise, a release that sees the band taking on a subtler and somewhat more mature approach to a genre they helped to reach a massive peak over the last few years.

Opening track Red Clouds quickly sets the scene...
